Publication of new UK Road Safety Strategy delayed to allow for review on impaired driving

3 December 2009

 On 3 December UK road safety minister Paul Clark MP released a Written Statement on Road Safety

Following recent DfT consultations, Ministers have asked Sir Peter North to provide advice on specific proposals to change legislation on drink and drug driving by the end of March 2010. His findings will inform the contents of the new road safety strategy, therefore the strategy will likely be delayed for a further six months.
